Multi-Platinum country music singer/songwriter Scotty McCreery announced today that, in light of current events and out of an abundance of caution, he will postpone his upcoming May concerts in the UK and Ireland and reschedule them for October.
“I’ve really been looking forward to coming over this Spring, but my first priority is the health and safety of my fans, venue owners and staff, and my band and crew,” said McCreery. “It may be a few months later than we had originally planned, but I can’t wait to come over to the UK and Ireland in October and see everyone. We will all get through this together.”
All shows except for Bristol, England (originally set for May 19th) will be rescheduled to the new dates listed below. Original tickets remain valid.
Unfortunately, the Bristol show could not be rescheduled, so those tickets will be refunded. Ticketholders should contact their point of purchase for refund information. “I’m so sorry Bristol,” said McCreery. “I am very disappointed that I’m not able to perform in your city on the rescheduled tour. I hope to be there on a future UK tour, and I hope some of you are able to come to our London show since it is now on a Saturday.”
The new dates are:
01/10/20 Manchester, England – O2 Ritz
03/10/20 London, England – O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire
05/10/20 Glasgow, Scotland – Old Fruitmarket
06/10/20 Belfast, Northern Ireland – The Limelight (SOLD OUT)
07/10/20 Dublin, Ireland – Academy

The ACM and CMT Award-winner is currently in the Top 20 on the Mediabase / Country Aircheck US country airplay chart with his current single “In Between” from the No.1-debuting album Seasons Change, which was just RIAA-certified Gold for sales of more than 500,000 units and already features two consecutive No. 1 hits: the RIAA Double Platinum certified “Five More Minutes” and the RIAA Platinum certified “This is It.” After touring with Old Dominion at the end of last year and performing at Luke Bryan’s Crash My Playa event in Cancun, Mexico in January, McCreery will join Chris Young on the road later this summer for the “Town Ain’t Big Enough Tour.” The Triple Tigers/Sony recording artist recently released his first digital-only EP, The Soundcheck Sessions, which features acoustic renditions of his hits “Five More Minutes,” “This is It,” “In Between” and the fan-favourite “Still.”
